Nominate an Adult Role Model
Celebrating Healthy Communities Coalition, a project of San Juan Basin Health Department, wants to hear from youth about who they see as positive adult role models in La Plata County. Youth under age 21 can nominate an adult who exemplifies positive qualities including: modeling responsible, healthy behavior or inspiring a youth to be a better person or positively impacting the lives of young people in our community. The adult could be their parent, a family member, teacher, coach, neighbor, group leader, community elder or other adult.
A list of the 40 Development Assets (building blocks of healthy development) accompanies the nomination form to help youth think about all the ways their nominee helps them build assets.
Nominations are due March 15, 2013 and award winners will be notified in April. For more information, call Kyra Moon at 335.2049.
